Schmacon Crusted Atlantic Salmon over Lemon Avocado Jus

Serves 1


4 strips Schmacon

1 Tbs. salt and pepper
1 egg yolk
2 oz. cold water

Schmacon Crusted Atlantic Salmon


Whisk water and egg yolk together. Lightly brush salmon filet with egg mixture adding a pinch of salt and pepper. Lay Schmacon strips side by side on a cutting board and place salmon in the center. Wrap Schmacon around salmon. Brush with egg mixture once more. Heat oil in pan over medium high heat until just beginning to smoke. With metal spatula, carefully set salmon in oil with smooth side down. Turn when Schmacon begins to brown, approximately 3 minutes. Carefully turn over and cook for 4 more minutes. Remove salmon and place on plate to rest. Pour oil out of pan and squeeze lemon juice into pan, not over heat, adding salt and pepper. Add avocado into pan with lemon juice and heat over high heat for 20 seconds. Remove liquid and avocado onto plate. Slice salmon in half and place on avocado.  Garnish with fresh herbs.
